Re: caliber for new build on long lenght action 06 bolt face
The .280 AI has phenomenal ballistics. It has damn-near identical ballistics as the 7mm RemMag, but in a non-magnum case. My gunsmith said he's been building them for 40 years, and they are one of his favorite hunting cartridges for deer-sized game. Which is what I want to build one for, for hunting whitetails.
